    Another Outstanding Book!

    I'm a long time fan of Barbara Livingston's, having purchased all of her books, seeing her photos weekly in BloodHorse Magazine, and visiting her website practically daily. No one captures the spirit and beauty of the Thoroughbred like she does. Thanks for the wonderful stories and photos of some of our favorite geriatric racing heroes.

    More Old Friends: A review

    In her highly successful book, Old Friends, Barbara Livingston shed a much-needed light on the final years of some of our most beloved Thoroughbreds. In the five years since its publication, interest in our `seniors¿ has never been higher, and the book even led to the founding of a retirement home for horses, called, appropriately enough, Old Friends. I was already an enthusiastic fan of horse racing, but Old Friends opened a whole new world for me. I, too, became one of those people who begged for a sequel and kept wondering when it would be published. The good news is that Barbara Livingston has returned, with More Old Friends, Visits with My Favorite Thoroughbreds. The equally good news is that her new book is as beautiful and as touching as its predecessor. More Old Friends consists of 65 stories about 100 Thoroughbreds. As with Old Friends, the new book is divided between the very famous (Storm Cat, Winning Colors, Personal Ensign), the once famous but now largely forgotten (Precisionist, Miswaki) and those horses who, throughout their lives, have remained anonymous to all but a few devoted fans. Gracing the cover is a Livingston favorite: the lovely mare, Carabid. Her story of determination and courage rivals that of the more famous Barbaro, and you will never forget her. Nor will you forget the amazing story of Highland Bud and Betsy Wells and the unique bond they shared: you cannot read their story without being moved to tears. But it is hard to single out one or two stories, since each one is as unique and as special as the horse it describes. One fact has always been clear: Barbara Livingston loves her subjects, and the horses and the people who care for them are treated with genuine respect and affection. Ms. Livingston is renowned for her equine photography and her fans will be happy to know that this book contains some of her very best work. And she has taken her writing to a new level: if anything, More Old Friends is even more gracefully and seamlessly written than the original. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, both for fans and non-fans alike. The fact that several of the horses in More Old Friends have since passed away only adds to the poignancy of the book. For those who love horses, this is a book you will read again and again. For anyone who has ever wondered why people become so attached to horses, there could be no better introduction than More Old Friends. Thanks to Barbara Livingston, her favorite Thoroughbreds become our favorite Thoroughbreds, and they will live on forever. We can only hope it won't be another 5 years until the next Old Friends.
